Oil climbs on supply concerns

Oil prices rose for a third straight session on Monday, buoyed by forecasts of a widening supply deficit in the fourth quarter after Saudi Arabia and Russia extended cuts and by optimism about a recovery in demand in China.

Brent crude futures rose 71 cents, or 0.8%, to $94.64 a barrel by 0622 GMT while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures were at $91.55 a barrel, up 78 cents, or 0.9%.
